Let Us Repair

What an interesting word, repair. It means to fix something, of course. But also:

Move, travel, or proceed toward some place; "He repaired to his cabin in the woods."

Let us repair to the kitchen and repair the sink, for I have a sinking feeling it won’t drain. Not really, I’m making stuff up.

I have ordered the new graphics card my PC needs to continue its useful existence. It’s coming from Amazon.com, eventually, on sale at $33.94, which is 36% off. And free shipping.

I’m a pretty good shopper, huh?

Don’t know what a graphics card looks like? It looks like this.


I say it’s coming eventually because it might not be here for 3 or 4 weeks. That’s annoying. I didn’t notice until I was placing the order that the page said “in stock,” sold by Amazon directly and “usually ships in 1-3 weeks.”

And I wonder why it is that Amazon can ship books it has in stock in the warehouse the next day, but not other things it claims to have in stock in the warehouse. Smells like something in the fridge is suspicious to me.
